We have a poll up! As requested in the Baker Mayfield thread.

Let your voice be heard in the vote, please read the article, and explain which outcome you see in 2022.

You left out the greatest QB of all-time.

No one else can do what I can do. And I’ve truly figured out in this (draft) process, if I can maximize all my potential in every aspect of the game – this is bold – I do have the ability to be the greatest quarterback to ever play. Imagine taking (Tom) Brady’s intellect and Brady’s preparation and putting it on a guy with Cam Newton’s body. Why can’t I be the greatest? The only thing stopping me from it is me. That’s what’s driving me now.

I want Russ.
Only way I want Rodgers is he brings Adams with him (since he is a free agent)
I don't see Berry blowing any assets to fix problem this year. I could see them cutting Case in the offseason while targeting and drafting a mid round QB that they like and develop behind Baker. That way they can hedge their bets and not piss someone off
Are developmental QBs still a thing now that reps are limited in practice? Seems like the only real option is pick up the 5th year option load up at WR and IDL and if baker is as bad as a lot of people think we’ll be picking high in 23 in a draft class that is alleged to have a few franchise QBs.
I want Russ, but so does everyone else who needs a QB. Rodgers stays in GB, he's not leaving success.

Sure, Cleveland has the perfect storm for Russ, O-Line, strong running attack, potential to bring in WRs.

But, we are Cleveland, not used to huge acquisitions, especially dream-like.

Mind is going with Baker on a prove it all over again season.
As people are filling out this poll, I want to plug this outstanding post from @ZooCrewDude who thought about the costs and benefits of each scenario.

EDIT - Follow this link:

Definitely worth a revisit as you write out your choice.

I want the guy who’s gonna bring Ciara with him. I wanna see her in Browns gear.
The tag/short term deal is not necessary, is it?

If we were going to keep him as QB for 2022 would his 5th year option at 18.8M just be the option?
Change the poll? Yeah, we can do that. I was too busy writing a kick-ass article about how this season is certainly and quantifiably Baker's fault.
